Demo Watch Dogs: Legion Runs At Only 30 fps 

One of the first games by Ubisoft which utilizes the latest technology of ray tracing is the Watch Dogs: Legion. However, it is said that the demo version of the game will be able to perform highly well at only 30fps. You can turn to the maximum graphics when you’ve turned on this setting. It can even run at 1080p but only in 30fps.

This classic grace is saved by the fact that it will support Nvidia’s highest quality technology known as the DLSS 2.0. This technology will boost up the frame rate at around 60fps during the highest setting and when you’ve enabled the training ray. According to our information, during the demo build, this technology wasn’t available; this wasn’t applied in it.

Then a certain question occurs on every gamers mind that will the Watch Dogs: Legion be able to run in 4K, having the same settings. When set to Ultra settings, most demanding games including Assassins Creed: Odyssey and Ghost Recon Breakpoint are able to hit the 60fps mark. So, it won’t be very surprising if Watch Dogs: Legion did the same.

Watch Dogs: Legion Release Date


According to the Ubisoft calendar, Watch Dogs: Legion will be out on 29 October 2020. The launch date is this close doesn’t leave any time for the team to improve the game performance. So, you can not expect any major improvements in terms of performance in the actual gameplay.
